Not a classic like Blade Runner


Each to their own, but I felt that it was as good - if not better - than Blade Runner.
A very worthy (if unnecessary) sequel that can stand on its own merits.

It was absolutely awful, so boring that we walked out three quarters of the way through, I checked and it was the same opinion as several other people I knew, but as you say each to their own.
If you’re expecting the usual multiplex fodder I can see how you might be disappointed. For fans of intelligent sci-fi, however, this is a must watch.

totally agree, such a shame it didn't make money it deserved, one of the best films of last year and head and shoulders above the usual blockbuster fodder. suppose this shows they is no market for good/intelligent story telling and the fast majority are happy big explosions and no plot

Is this to Buy or rent?

How is the quality for UHD? Is it equally as good as a Blu-ray?
Looks like digital copy to buy.

How would you get the UHD version onto your tv?
You need a Samsung Tv.

There is a rakuten app for smart tv's. My Samsung has it. Haven't installed it but I would think you would view it through that like the Amazon app.
From Rakuten website

Compatible UHD Devices

At this moment only Samsung Smart TVs made since 2015 with UHD resolution are compatible with our UHD content. Also models highter than J6000. We're working to increase the number of brands compatibles with UHD content.
I think you can with Xbox one X as well. Probably with Xbox one S too?
Nice one, I’ve got a 2016 Samsung tv and Xbox one x so hopefully covered.
I am curious about the quality difference Between disc and digital as I’ve got the blu ray on pre-order for 3 times the price of this.

I’ve heard disc is better as it doesn’t dip or drop like streaming can but if you can run this through an Xbox can u download it rather than stream?

It's stream only. And you aren't Gauranteed to keep your copy for more than a few years with rakuten. It's a licence thing.

Currently only HD is offered in the UK, which is a pain when the equivalent USA store is renting and selling 4K HDR movies on the xbox store....

Incidentally if you want to see the quality of the xbox 4K downloads, you can change your region to the USA in your xbox settings and download some 10 minute free samples of wonder woman and King Kong, if you want to make a 4K blu Ray disc comparison.

Have to agree, although possibly unnecessary, for me a better film which got better on second viewing.

I meant on the Rakuten app, there are some apps which do have 4k support in. Netflix and Amazon DO have 4k videos, I believe Youtube might also have 4k support but I did not test that yet.
Seen this. Not a patch on the original
Unless I'm blind I can't see how to buy the UHD version? I just see options to watch now or buy now for 6.99

Clicking "Buy" will take you to checkout where you get the £6,99 or £7.99 options.

Cheers! Bought the UHD version. 20% quidco too Hopefully the UHD works on Xbox x or on the hisense tv app.

The One-S will deliver Ultra HD from 4K Blu-rays, not sure about through apps though.

Thanks a lot - sorted! I don't have a Samsung TV, but my LG already has the Rakuten channel so hopefully it will support UHD at some stage.

Seems a bargain to own outright!

Same with the X, I imagine the Netflix and Amazon apps might also have 4k content like the X does.

Bought the uhd version, looks poor on my Samsung TV. Can't find anyway to find out what resolution it's playing in
No hdr for me going to email them to see what the craic is. If I don't get hdr I assume its the hd version.

Check your library to see its definitely the uhd version. What Samsung do you have?
Edited by: "TALON1973" 28th Jan
The uhd option is lit on the title in my library and I paid £7.99 for it. Got a 55MU7000

We almost did the same, not even interesting, just dull and boring. Probably not a good movie to watch if you are depressed. Personally one of the worst movies I saw last year but seems to appeal to people. I think it’s a bit like marmite
This is one strange movie , just couldn’t get into it
Honestly such a great movie and the stylisation and the set pieces were simply superb!
I had a lot of questions coming away from this movie but by God I enjoyed it

As you say, it's really just common sense. You are getting a lower quality due to compression, even if you download it's still the same file and format.

I would stick with the disk, personally.

Press info button when playing gives you the spec
nice deal and this even has subtitles which is rare for rakuten. if wuntu does another 350 free points that would make this £3.50 for hd and £4.50 for uhd
